But before I get started...check back to our November Blog Hops and see if you are one of the many Winners and claim your prizes! Becca Y. is the Winner at My Kraft Kloset's Nov prize. Congratulations!!!
Which was instilled in me by my mother at an early age to always give thanks. And I've made sure my 4 children do too! As we always hand write "thank you" notes to thank friends and family that gave us gifts over the holiday season or anytime of year.
And an added bonus is it's another excuse to use your holiday stamps and pretty papers one more time before you put them away. This month I was inspired by patterned papers, as shown in my card below...
This month I kept my cards simple, but similar styles and designs, so I could make a bunch of them.
Then I stamped these stunning reindeer with clear ink directly onto the plaid card base, sprinkled with gold embossing powder, and heat set. Next I stamped the sentiment (from the Abundant Blessings kit) in clear ink on white card stock, sprinkled with gold embossing powder, and heat set. And repeated for a second sentiment. Then die cut the sentiment out, adhered to card base, and trimmed the edge. And added adhesive gems to complete this elegant card that expresses how truly Thankful, Grateful, and Blessed I am for all of you in my life! Thank you for your support!
I hope I've inspired you to use your holiday stamps and patterned papers in new ways for other occasions and see what you can create. The possibilities are endless!
